Get Ready, 'Squid Game' Season 2 Is Officially Happening

Squid Game writer/director Hwang Dong-hyuk has confirmed the addictive series is returning for a second season.

After garnering the eyeballs of millions of viewers throughout the globe Netflix's Squid Game is set to return for a second season. 

In an interview with AP, the film’s creator, writer, and director Hwang Dong-hyuk confirmed the latest development. Below is a translation of what he shared:

“So there’s been so much pressure, so much demand and so much love for a second season. So I almost feel like you leave us no choice! But I will say there will indeed be a second season. It’s in my head right now. I’m in the planning process currently. But I do think it’s too early to say when and how that’s going to happen. So I will promise you this…(in English) Gi-Hun will come back, and he will do something for the world.”

Previously Dong-hyuk said that he was unsure if Squid Game would receive a season two. In a past interview with Variety, he expressed that if it was brought back he’d need a writer’s room. For the sensational first season, he’d written and directed each episode. On a potential season 2 he said:

“I don’t have well developed plans for ‘Squid Game 2.’ It is quite tiring just thinking about it. But if I were to do it, I would certainly not do it alone. I’d consider using a writers’ room and would want multiple experienced directors.”
